Thank you, thank you thank you!!! It is wonderful and now makes Palemoon perfect (and it worked on the particularly troublesome website I want to be able to access without using Firefox)

I hate to admit how long it took me to find the .xpi on GitHub though - finally I saw the "1 release" and there is was.

I really do appreciate this. I had tried the add-on Moon Test Tool but gotten nowhere with it so this was a great surprise.

Any possibility of including a Wikipedia lookup add-on, such as QuickWiki or Wiki It? With either one, you right-click a word on a webpage, and it opens a popup with the Wikipedia entry (QuickWiki, my preference) or takes you directly to the Wikipedia page (Wiki It). I've found them indispensable over the years, but I don't see anything on the Compatibility page about them (or any other Wikipedia add-in, if there are any that do the same thing). I used QuickWiki until it stopped working on PM and switched to Wiki It, which works up through PM 26 but not 27. That and the lack of a Ghostery substitute (though I'm going to try Priv3+) have kept me from updating to PM 27, which I'd like to do.

Thanks.

None of these add-ons has nothing to do with this topic, dedicated to Jetpack/SDK extensions. Please open a separate thread with this question.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

back2: thanks.

JustOff: How would I know? I'm not a techie, just a user. A thousand apologies for my ignorance and trespass on your time and patience (not such a terrible trespass, actually). Tobinwave says on the compatibility thread that it's being rewritten and not to post there. It wouldn't occur to me to start a new thread--I notice a lot of "Do this, don't do that" on the PM forum, developers and techies ordering people around--the arrogance of the professional coder--which I had hoped, vainly it appears, to avoid. I have a deal for you: I'll post in a separate thread (actually, I'm not going to, since back2 very kindly just gave me an answer without criticizing), if you review what Moonchild says in one of his posts: Please try to keep things pleasant.

Awesome! Can we have a right click option in the right click menu, or left click to close?

Thanks. :)
With Pale Moon by my side, surfing the web is quite enjoyable and takes my headaches away! :)

don't see how you could construe justoff's post as 'criticism'. seems like you have some kind of problem with authority figures, or people who you think act like one

I honestly don't understand your overreaction and kindly ask you not to continue the discussion in this manner. I can help you with the extensions you mentioned in a way I have proposed above or not do it. There is no hidden agenda behind this.

More than a month late, I should visit & check for notifications more often.

... and install the download as "from a local file" - got it :)

There are some others by OffJustOff on github that I am interested thin, e.g. https://github.com/JustOff/view-source-in-tab - meanwhile I understand that the .xpi should be found under "releases", but I can't see a link to something named "releases", so what's the recommended method to install such ones?

I just tried to manually add "releases" to the known url, resulting in: https://github.com/JustOff/view-source-in-tab/releases and found the .xpi, but that seem rather inconvenient.
Isn't there a better way? Did/do I miss something?

Part way down the page, under Updates, you will find this entry:
18.06.2013: Improved version v1.9.2B of SortPlaces. Click on the link text ‘sortplaces-1.9.2B-sm-fx.xpi' to download it.

Harry

That site also has CheckPlaces, a bookmark checker, and it works with Pale Moon.

Anyone know a substitute for Save Button for Pinterest?
